Snippets #24

The second battalion of the second Polish Line Regiment is not yet ready for public exposure. It still needs to be presented its colours (flag)! 😳 And von Peter himself is fairly certain that those colours are in stock!! 🥺 How hard can it be? 🤔 Anyways as an interim stopgap sort of thing von Peter himself presents …

Great Wargaming Survey 2022 Edition

After several years surely this doesn’t need much of an introduction. But here’s the official introduction anyway …

Welcome to the Great Wargaming Survey!
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles” – Sun Tzu

Apart from rolling dice, there seem to be few things wargamers like to do more than discussing the state of their hobby. This survey aims to answer some of those questions and publish the answers for all to see.

Thanks to our sponsors, we’ve got a stack of generous prizes to give to some lucky winners. On top of that, everyone gets a €5 discount voucher for the Karwansaray Publishers website and a selection of WSS articles to download free of charge upon completing the survey.

Filling out the survey shouldn’t take more than about 10 minutes, and we’re taking responses until August 31st, 2022. Please tell all your wargaming friends to come take it too!

Thank you very much for participating!

Real Time History

A publication of great interest

The focus of interest for von Peter himself in the Napoleonic Wars is the year 1813. Therefore it was with a squeal of delight that the following was spotted in the General d’Armee section of the Too Fat Lardies Lard Forum

Leipzig Campaign 1813
Post by DCRBrown » Wed Jul 20, 2022 10:27 am

The Leipzig Campaign 1813 is the third of a series of pint sized campaign scenarios for General d’Armee!
The draft is now at Lardy HQ, undergoing editing and other very technical editing type stuff! We are looking to release in August.

This instalment presents six historical battles that follow Napoleon’s 1813 campaign.
Each scenario provides players with terrain maps, troop deployments, objectives and orders of battle.

The scenarios are:
1. WEISSENFELS – Ney’s infantry take on a Russian covering force.
2. LUTZEN – Ney’s infantry hold out against Prussian attacks.
3. BAUTZEN – Ney attempts to breakthrough the Allied right flank.
4. DRESDEN – Ney leads the Young Guard against the Russians and Prussians.
5. MOCKERN – Marmont holds Mockern against the Prussians.
6. LIEBERTWOLKWITZ. Lauriston battles Austrians and Russians at Leipzig.

The previous pint sized campaigns were/are …

They’ll be reaping in some of the hard earned cash of von Peter himself. The cunning devils!

For the ignorant DCRBrown is David C R Brown the author of amongst other rule sets General d’Armee.
